Editorial Reviews

For more than fifteen years, the name Jedi Mind Tricks has become synonymous with raw, gritty underground hip-hop. From their debut album, The Psycho Sical in 1996 to their seminal sophomore release Violent By Design, to their musical expansion heard on Servants and Heaven, Kings in Hell, JMT has made and indelible impression on the independent music scene while arguably forgingits own subgenre of rap. Now led by the fiery vocals of controversial frontman, Vinnie Paz, and his venerable rhyme partner, Jus Allah, the group has built one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful careers in independent music.

On October 25th, JMT unveils its seventh studio album, Violence Begets Violence through Vinnie Paz's own imprint, Enemy Soil. JMT fans can expect more of the uncompromising, unrelenting brand of hardcore rap music that has attracted legions of some of the most loyal fans in indie music. The 14-track album features appearances from Vinnie Paz's Army of Pharoahs crew members and others whike JMT producer, Stoupe, hands over production duties to a new wave of talented producers honed on the JMT sound, but set on taking a fresh take on a classic formula.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok but time to upgrade December 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD
i love Jedi Mind but seriously the guys are getting way too repetitive... 99% of the lyrics deal with the so called "horrocore" and it's getting old... the album is ok, the lyrics are dope, but where is the versatility.. The earlier Jedi Mind albums had alot more to offer with lyrics and different subject matter and of course Stoupe's beats were beyond awesome... Vinnie has too lyrical of a mind to just be talking about fatality moves and the wrath of god... previous albums featured much more heart felt songs, much more range as well.. songs like Shadow Business, Philosophy of Horror, Savirself,End Of Days so on and so on showcase much more of the man's depth... this album is ok but it's time to focus on more than how many ways you'll kill a man.

5.0 out of 5 stars First album without Stoupe October 27, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Yes, this is the first Jedi Mind Tricks album without Stoupe and as everyone else I was scared that this would be an album packed with dope verses and terrible beats. However, the beats on this album are real good, probably only two throwaway beats and those to me would probably be "Bloodborn Enemy" and "When Crows Descend Upon You". A few of these beats sound like Stoupe's work and others are great for Vinnie and Jus voice and flow. Jus Allah went in on this album. This is the hungriest he has been in a long time and his lines are ridiculous. For example one of his lines is "I don't run from the problems I start usually, We wet you up, no lifeguards on duty". Anyone complaining about Jus Allah from "A History Of Violence" will forget that thought. Vinnie Paz comes with the usual dope rhymes, dope flow as expected. A lot of the hooks on these tracks are dope as well, for example the "F*** Ya Life" sample is incredible, same as "The Sacrilege Of Fatal Arms". The features on this album are all great. "Design In Malice" is the best featured song in my opinion with help from Young Zee and Pacewon. Young Zee takes the song in my opinion with lines like "And then I forget to call her, after I nut I get attention deficit disorder". Other features are great such as Chip Fu from the Fu-Schnickens, Demoz, King Magnetic, and Blacastan. There are also two remixes on this album that can be downloaded from the Jedi Mind Tricks website: Target Practice (Shuko Remix) and When Crows Descend Upon You (C-Lance Remix), both are very good remixes. As far as my favorite tracks on the album I would have to pick:

1. Design In Malice (featuring Young Zee and Pacewon)
2. Willing A Destruction Onto Humanity
3. F*** Ya Life (featuring Blacastan)
4. Imperial Tyranny (featuring King Magnetic)
5.

4.0 out of 5 stars What was everyone expecting? October 26, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I can see why a longtime fan (like myself) would be somewhat disappointed, but that's mostly due to the absence of Stoupe. What was everyone expecting after A History Of Violence? Maybe it was just the fact that I had to run around to several record stores to find a copy, but I was satisfied after listening through the whole album a few times.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still evil October 25, 2011
By Bricks
Format:MP3 Music
It's JMT music, but it's too bad Stoupe left the group right when he was starting to take his sound to new places, because the JMT sound is starting to sound pretty formulamatic by this point. But the new producers mostly do their job well, and I'm glad Jus is back again. If you're a big fan then this is a no-brainer.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointing February 6, 2012
By life
Format:MP3 Music
The days of Jedi Mind Tricks being innovative artists are long gone. I mean no disrespect, but come on. When I listen to older records like Violent by Design or The Pscho-social album, it's apparent that Jedi has dumbed down their music. Not many records I've heard can compare to those 2 albums. After waiting years for something of that quality to resurface from them, I think I've finally given up hope. I know all you original fans out there know what I'm talking about.

3.0 out of 5 stars CackGravey October 27, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I miss Stoupe... Don't get me wrong C-Lance is a great producer and DJ Kwestion is one of the greatest right now, but these beats and loops are way different from any of JMT's previous albums. There are no longer any classical loops from Stoupe with Vinnie Paz spitting raw aggression. Jus Allah has slightly improved from a couple years ago, but he's nowhere near as dope as he was over a decade ago on Violent By Design. Anyway, not a bad album, it's pretty similar to Heavy Metal Kings. I just wouldn't call it a Jedi Mind Tricks CD. Demoz is probably the one who spits the illest verses on the album too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull April 29, 2014
Format:Audio CD
While I love jmt and I consider vinnie and jus to be top 5 best Mcs ever. And I own every jmt & aotp albums, violence begets violence is their worse release. It's even worse then visions of Gandhi that had at least 5 good songs, while this album only had two dope tracks... Design in malice & target practice were amazing yes, but the rest of the album was just boring & dull. And I was let down cause I had high hopes for this album. But I still love jmt psycho social violence by design servants in heaven history of violence and legacy of blood, are all dope albums. Visions of Gandhi and this violence begets violence are jmt most weak releases. Skip this and buy history of violence and army of the pharaohs in death reborn.

4.0 out of 5 stars What you expect... March 6, 2012
By Dutch
Format:Audio CD
This is all you would expect from Jedi Mind Tricks, an album of hardcore violence and a dark tone. That is exactly it, there is nothing else to say really. All of the production is very dark in atmosphere and this keeps the album steady...but not boring. The beats are hard hitting and ideal for head bobbing, that typical AOTP feeling. Vinnie Paz and Jus Allah both perform well. Jus Allah is rather hilarious and very interesting while Vinnie is tad a better, more serious and clever. Both their deliveries are raspy and on point. From a content standpoint, there is none. Just violence and violence once again, which is the point of the album, and it's done quite well.
